With all the 'should we?' or 'shouldn't we? keep hospital appointments during this awful Coronavirus outbreak I thought because my appointment was still on schedule last week I should try to attend. I also thought I would cheer up my Consultant, and his nurse.
I said to him at the end of the appointment, that a friend had dared me to wear my mask whilst visiting the hospital. He laughed when I took it out of my bag and said, 'Put it on'. I said, 'Put yours on too.' Then we decided to have a photo taken. We distanced ourselves, of course. What a great sport he was.
While the Coronavirus situation is going on it's important to try and laugh with each other. Our Doctors and Nurses as well as other front line services need a break from having to be serious all the time. After all, we are all in this together.
